SkyWest Airlines has apologized to a passenger barred from a plane’s restroom by a flight attendant.
James Whipple says that after repeated pleas to empty his beer-filled bladder on a recent flight, he finally found relief – with an air sickness bag.
Now, the Sandy man says SkyWest has issued him an apology for his distress. “It was like I had no choice. I started to urinate on myself. So, thinking the way I thought, I grabbed one of those vomit bags,” Whipple said.
“I didn’t think I did anything wrong. I could have relieved myself all over my pants. It was almost like that was what she preferred me to do,” he said.
On Wednesday, an airline representative apologized to Whipple on behalf of the attendant and promised to send him some travel vouchers.
He had plenty of beer before the flight.
